Behind every person . . .

For Clint and Conni, farm life and city life had one thing in common growing up – the animal companions that kept them company. Now, they have made the transformational decision to include HSSV in their legacy, to help secure a better future for the animals in our community.

 

As part of their $1 million gift, Clint and Conni established two endowment funds. One endowment is for HSSV’s Chief of Shelter Medicine position, to secure high level of expertise that our medical leadership requires to continue our lifesaving mission. The second endowment is for our area of greatest need.

 

It’s “exciting to know that you’re making this kind of a difference in the world,” Connie says.

 

Listen to Clint and Conni describe their decision to “help people by helping animals” for years to come, in their own words.

. . . there's a story.

“As she battled cancer, our sister, Sue, was an inspiration. In her honor, we’ve created an endowment with HSSV to help ill, neglected, or abandoned animals in the fight of their lives. Our furry friends should not have to endure these challenges alone.”
